Train Train by Robert Connely Farr

Growing up in Bolton Mississippi, Robert Connely Farr made an instant connection with the blues. Charley Patton & The Mississippi Sheiks were the band from the region, and being mentored by Jimmy “Duck” Holmes was the reason Farr developed into a player of the Bentonia style of Delta Blues.

His album Dirty South Blues propelled Farr into some success, becoming recognized in the industry and nominated for various awards. With a new album coming out later this year, Country Supper, Farr is taking an opportunity to promote some of his live recordings.

This was from the live album, Live in EastVan, recorded in East Vancouver and released earlier this year. Robert plays alongside drummer Jay Bundy Johnson. The connection is dynamite. Jay has such a smooth small kit big sound approach, while the opportunity wasn’t lost on Farr, his guitar is fat and rangy, the sound is dirty and charged with energy. There is honesty in the sound, soul in the lyric. Well done.
